Bonnie and Clyde? Couple charged for robbery

Steven Bernard

Lucia Moreno

A man was robbed at gunpoint on Thursday and police were quick to arrest the suspected gunman and a woman believed to have been his accomplice. This afternoon, eighteen year old Steven Bernard and twenty-one year old Lucia Moreno appeared before Magistrate Adolph Lucas. Bernard was charged with Robbery and Threatening Words while Moreno was charged with Abetment to Robbery.  The victim, Enio Humberto Martinez, was robbed of his cash after which Bernard allegedly told him “If you call the police, I will come back and kill you.” Both accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charges; Moreno was granted bail of four thousand dollars, which she met by this evening but Bernard was remanded to the Central Prison since he allegedly used a firearm to commit the crime. They live at the same address, but Moreno told the court she doesn’t understand why she was charged since she was not with Bernard when the robbery occurred. The two are to return to court on December twenty-seventh.

    Armed robbers need to serve sentences of at least 10 years. If she helped in some way, the same for her.
